Today we are pleased to announce that we are lowering the price for Spamdrain. The base annual price for regular Spamdrain has been lowered by almost 30% and for Spamdrain+ by almost 15% depending on your currency. We’re doing this to make Spamdrain more affordable for more people. Go to our web site for more details.
To enjoy the new prices, simply go to the order form and place your order as usual. The new prices will be applied to all customers – new and current – automatically when placing a new order.
If you recently renewed your subscription with the higher price, please contact us at email@example.com and we’ll work something out.
Have you ever checked how many messages your Spamster has filtered this week/ month or so?
Recently we have shared some info about the amount of filtered messages of all our clients in this article. Today we would like to describe “Statistics” feature available for each account.
Statistics charts can be found on this page https://spamdrain.com/en/app.html#/statistics. Following the link, you will see the amount of filtered messages by your own Spamster. You can switch the view to “Last week” / “4 weeks” / “6 months”. As we can see for most of the clients, the charts tend to go high, which means that the number of messages filtered is constantly growing. We hope that spam in your Inbox tends to go to 0.
Hovering the mouse on the specific column will let you see the exact number of messages. There is also a possibility to see only chosen category of emails: spam/valid/viruses/newsletters.
If you are a happy owner of a Spamdrain+ subscription and there are more than one user added to your account, you can switch between the users and have a closer look at statistics per user.
Now, when you know the exact number of filtered messages, you can easily calculate how much time you save with the help of your Spamster.
Do you want to know whether the number is high or low? Feel free to leave a comment with the amount of filtered messages per week and compare results 🙂
Today we have the pleasure to announce we have released the second beta of both our iOS and Android apps. This second beta adds better support for iPad and tablets. We have also fixed some issues and added a tutorial which is displayed first time you start the app.

If you haven’t joined as beta tester yet, please read below for info of how to apply. If you are testing, please let us know what you think – we want to know what’s good and what we can do better. Send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sign up for iOS beta testing
We are using Apple’s Testflight that’s now integrated in their normal app publishing tools. So all you need to do is to send us an email to email@example.com and we will send you an invite.

Please be patient :-). We are also working on a complete rewrite of our web interface, and will soon publish a beta version of that as well.

Beware of e-mails from the Swedish Tax Office
A great number of Swedes has the latest days received e-mails (spam) from phishers with “click here to get your tax return immediately”. The aim of the bluffers is of course to obtain your bank account details and thereby get access to your account for fraudulent causes.
The Swedish Tax Authority (STA) released on its website yesterday a sharp warning for fraudulent attempts like this. STA calls for not to click on links in e-mails that seems to be coming from STA. “If it says that you should submit your bank account details och credit card numbers you should not do it. STA never asks for this information via e-mail or SMS. We only do this using our e-services and when you login via e-identification” adds STA on its website.
The fraudulent e-mails could appear differently. In one example, which STA has published on its website, the recipient is guided to “click here to get your tax return straight into your account”
Everyone who has submitted their sensitive information should immediately report to local police, the STA finishes.
Varning för skattebluff
Ett stort antal svenskar har de senaste dagarna fått mejl från nätbedragare med uppmaningar i stil med “klicka här för att få din skatteåterbäring”. Bluffmakarnas mål är att få mottagarna att fylla i kontouppgifter och på så sätt lura dem på pengar. Skatteverket gick under torsdagen ut med en skarp varning för bedragarna på sin hemsida. Myndigheten uppmanar medborgarna att inte klicka på länkar i mejl som ser ut att komma från Skatteverket men som ser misstänkt falska ut.
“Om det står att du ska lämna ifrån dig uppgifter om bankkontonummer eller kreditkortsnummer ska du inte göra det. Skatteverket efterfrågar aldrig dina kontouppgifter i mejl eller sms. Det gör vi endast via våra e-tjänster som du loggar in på med din e-legitimation”, skriver myndigheten på sin sajt.
Bluffmejlen kan se olika ut. I ett exempel på ett mejl som Skatteverket har lagt upp på sin hemsida används uppmaningen “klicka här för att få tillgång till formuläret för din skatteåterbäring”.
Den som har råkat fylla i kontouppgifter eller annan känslig information ges rådet att kontakta polisen.

We are currently experiencing problems with our main storage provider. This leads to that not all filtered messages can be viewed and released. Our provider is working on a solution and we will update this post as soon as we have more information. The filtering is still working and no messages will be lost – however the filtered messages cannot be viewed until this issue has been resolved.
Update 1: 2014-05-01 18:12 GMT+02:
There has also been disturbances with the filtering itself during the day because of this. We have now made a temporary fix, waiting for our provider to fully restore all functionality at their end. So messages filtered from now on and messages that have been filtered during the day should now be accessible again. Messages filtered before that are still unaccessible until our provider is fully available.
Update 2: 2014-05-01 20:08 GMT+02:
Our storage provider is now up and running again. We are currently synchronizing files and all filtered emails should soon be available again. We are still seeing disturbances so please be patient the next hours.
Update 3: 2014-05-01 22:48 GMT+02:
Everything should now be synchronized and all systems are up and running as normal again. We will update our systems to minimize the impact on SpamDrain when storage problems like the ones we experienced today occur.
We deeply apologize the inconvenience.
There has been a lot of news the past week about a security vulnerability in a version of OpenSSL, commonly known as the “Heartbleed Bug”. This bug could potentially allow a cyberattacker to access a website’s customer data along with traffic encryption keys. We have investigated our servers thoroughly and concluded that no parts of the SpamDrain service were ever affected by the Heartbleed bug.
That being said, we strongly recommend you to check the internet services you are using to see if you should change your password for these services. Mashable has a list of well-known services affected by this bug.
If you are using the same password in SpamDrain as you do for any service affected by the bug, we recommend you also change your SpamDrain password.
A second beta of the 2.0 version of the SpamDrain Android app is now on it’s way though Play Store. This version mainly contains bug fixes and no new features compared to the last beta.
We are currently working on adding the rest of the features such as adding and managing addresses and signing up. Until this is finished we’d love to get more beta testers. So please join our beta test Google+ group if you haven’t already to get your copy of the beta.
Just a short note to you all. We have decided to change our company name from Trillian AB to SpamDrain AB. Everything else stays the same. You may still see Trillian AB in some places but we are currently working on updating our company info in web sites, app stores, emails etc. In a couple of months we hope the new name, SpamDrain AB, to be fully propagated.
Today we have released the first beta of our new iOS app. It will be available to a selected number of beta testers registered at TestFlight. If you are intereseted in joining the beta programe, please see our earlier post.
New features introduced in SpamDrain 2.0:
- Search in filtered messages.
- Renamed Archive and Report to Blocked and Allowed.
- iPad support
- Report and release now has more choices.
- Empty filtered message per filtered address.

You will see feedback buttons inside the app. Please use them to send us feedback about this beta. We welcome all comments – both complaints and compliments and will try to use them to improve SpamDrain.
Today we did the one of the last updates to our servers to prepare for our new mobile apps. One more update is planned later today and some of the last bugs in the iOS app is also left to fix. After this we will finally release the first iOS beta to some of you who have registered your interest at TestFlight.
We also want to thank everyone who has signed up for the beta testing program. As for now we are very happy with the number of interested beta testers and we will soon start approve you in TestFlight.
Please make sure you have added a device in TestFlight since we won’t be able to send any releases to users without registered devices. So go into TestFlight on your iOS device and make sure to add it if you want to join the first beta release which we hope to send out tomorrow.
